The artwork was illustrated by Rodney Matthews following his sleeve design for Magnum's previous album Princess Alice and the Broken Arrow and Wings of Heaven Live. Into the Valley of the Moonking was released in three different versions: a regular jewel case CD, a Digipak consisting of a CD and bonus DVD, and a vinyl format for collectors with two LPs and a fold-out cover.
